I recently acquired a stash of old hand tools from my grandmother’s house. They belonged to my late grandfather, who passed away nearly 17 years ago now. Suffice to say, they haven’t been used for quite awhile. I’ll be putting up pictures of my efforts at restoring several of them, notably a craftsman smoothing plane, when I finish, but in the meantime I had a question regarding this little guy:
It’s stamped on the end “Martin Doscher, New York,” as shown here:
I’ve got it apart and I put the iron into some evaporust for the night. Tomorrow I’ll see about buffing/honing the iron, but for now, does anyone out there have any idea what kind of plane this might be? The blade is split partway up, like this:
Any help at all would be lovely! Google has failed me miserably, so I’ve come here. Thanks!
